I had been looking forward to this day for a long time. Winter wedding, tick, Golding Winery and the Uraidla Show Hall, tick, two flippin incredible people, tick.
The idea of a winter wedding might raise a concerned eyebrow with some, a wedding on the wettest July day for 80 years? I wouldn’t change a thing. I had inadvertently come into contact with Shana & Jordan a couple of times at different weddings over the past year and was stoked when they got in touch asking me to document their wedding. We met up at my place and just hit it off. Furthermore I hardly recall talking about the wedding at all, we just spoke at length about anything & everything.
I began the day with Jordan and the guys just as the morning began lighting up before making the short Journey to meet with the girls who were cool as cucumbers preparing at Shana’s parents beautiful home. As the departure time came around, the weather really let loose, it was being incredibly rude. I made my journey up the freeway towards Lobethal and pulled into Goldings to find everyone snug in the warm barn awaiting Shana’s entrance.
I had never before shot a ceremony inside the barn at Golding, and honestly to this day can’t think of a nicer inside venue. It was a stunning ceremony and after, as if by magic the rain halted giving us just just enough time to head outside and and shoot around the grounds before the weather unleashed on us in full force. We then made the 30 minute drive to the Uraidla Show Hall, and authentic and historic country community hub for the spectacular looking reception.
I have been lucky enough to spend handful of wedding days with this insanely beautiful bunch of people, and I can honestly say that being present amongst each and everyone of you is a real pleasure. I have never ever in my life been made to feel so welcome, its a really fantastic feeling. Anyhow, I have waffled on enough, let’s just let these images do the talking
